Hungary’s Foreign Minister announced on his Facebook page on Wednesday that the country would be “providing the second-largest vaccine donation of all time” with a shipment of vaccines to Bangladesh.
According to Péter Szijjártó (pictured), the 530,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine that Hungary is donating to Bangladesh will “help speed up the Bangladeshi vaccination campaign and contribute to making people around the world safer.” He added that “Bangladesh is a country with a population of 160 million, and one that Hungary works particularly well with on political, economic, and energy issues.”
The Foreign Minister also claimed that:
Hungary has millions of vaccines in reserve, which allows everyone to get their first, second, or even the third vaccine.
No official details have been given about a possible fourth vaccination yet, writes 444. Israel is the only country so far to begin offering it, and at the moment only older people and health care workers are eligible.
